- Good points:
A slim elegant looking set which if you are familiar with the Humax Freview programme recorder box it has this system built in the set. Very easy to set up the instalation from the handset which although is rather long is well balanced and function controls clearly marked and has two communication 'eyes' that allow the set to receive from the handset at practically any angle and position. Going back to the set itself, it has numerous points for connecting other devices such as DVD/player/recorder, VHS player/recorder, camera to view your pictures, camcorder and your PC. It also has HMDI ports and a view card slot and two scart connections. Tune your VHS in the 'analogue' mode of the TV by prtessing 'AV' on the handset, insert a tape in the VCR and put it playing, command the TV to search for channels automatically and it will find your VHS, it's that simple. All instructions in the 56 page instruction book are easy to follow and read and relates to both this, the 26 inch set and the next model up, the 32 inch. There is a seperate sheet to instruct you on fitting the bracket and stand, the bracket also can be wall mounted. Picture quality is exceptionally good, sharp and easy on the eyes which can be set to your liking with colour, flesh tone, brightness and contrast within the menus from the handset. The sound quality is also good with the speakers positioned in the front of the screen tucked under the bottom of the surround out of sight. There is a pale blue glow from a 'strip' light at the bottom of the surround when the set is on and goes out a few seconds after you switch the set off from the handset.
This set was purchased from a small local store that I frequently use for my home entertainment items and the propriator told me that this set and the other size ones in this series were so new that there were none as yet available from any of the larger stores, they infact were the first in the Country to stock them. I did not have to pay the full suggested retail price as I always like to haggle and get a goosd deal, which I did and saved quite a bit so shop around for the best deal if you consider buying a set.
- Bad points:
- Only one that I found, the four screw bolts that fix the bracket into the set and the four screw bolts that fix the base to the bracket were missing so check they are in the packaging when you buy.
